Snooker Betting Strategies 

When betting on snooker there are a number of strategies that you can adopt, particularly across big tournaments. There are a number of things to consider when betting on snooker, including: 

Match Format 

There are many lengths of games across different tournaments and they should be considered. 

Some matches are played as a best of seven, while others can go as many as 37 frames. It is important to consider this as concentration levels and stamina can play a huge part. After all, you might back Usain Bolt in the 100 metres, but it’s unlikely you would over 10,000. 

Study how players do over different length games and place your bets accordingly. 

Rankings

The snooker rankings are the first place you should look when betting on the sport. They can tell you an awful lot.  

A higher ranked player is much more likely to beat a lower ranked in general, although there are also other factors to consider. 

 The trajectory of a players movement in the rankings can also be a good indicator when betting on a match. If two players are ranked fairly closely to one another, you might be able to gage a winner by discovering whether a player has dropped in the rankings or climbed. 

Those on an upward climb up the rankings could well have the upper hand and will almost certainly be in better form.  

Style Of Play 

As with many sports in which players go head-to-head, the style of players can be instrumental.

Defensively minded players will often have better concentration levels and the longer they keep a more aggressive player out there, the more likely the latter is to lose concentration and begin to make mistakes. 

Alternatively, if an aggressive player can make a defensive player to come out and play shots, that could force errors as they’re ultimately out of their comfort zone. 

Different players mindsets can really rub off on one another and it will often be a significant factor in changing the course of a game.  

Recent Form 

As well as rankings, look at the more short term results of players. It’s only natural players go through good and bad patches and it’s usually very telling at a snooker table. 

Missed pots, frustration, bad shot selection are all noticeable in out-of-form players and this is exactly when then the shocks begin to happen.

Snooker frame betting is a bet on a particular frame of snooker rather than the entire match. For example, you might bet on a player to win a particular frame. You may also bet on the correct score of a game based upon a frame or the number of frames in a game with Over/Under odds.
